The picture of five-year-old Omran Daqneesh sitting in shock in an ambulance following an air strike has been seen as an image of the suffering of Syrian civilians in the country's continuing civil war.

Dr Ossama Abu Alez, a general surgeon in Eastern Aleppo, gives his reaction to the images, telling the BBC why he thinks the boy is actually one of the more fortunate people in the city.
